Our tour company arranged for our stay. As previous reviewers have commented, the rooms are large but offer no ammenities whatsoever - just a bed and two end tables. The bathroom had an impractical pedestal sink which meant there was no place to put your tolitries. While shampoo was provided, there was no soap. Breakfast was included, but if you...

We stayed for a few days after touring the islands by yacht. The rooms are fine, very clean and quiet. It was great that they can turn around your laundry in a few hours for just a few dollars. Everything in town is a short walk away, or you can take one of the local cabs for $1.

Rooms are quite spacious, but they have no charm at all - Almost reminded me of a hospital. For the price I would definitely expect more (there was no fridge, no tv, no safety-box), and there was a lot of noise, as you could hear everything going on outside. I didn't see anyone use the pool, which was across the...

The room was large and clean. It had a/c and wifi in the room which however did not work most of the time we were there. They were helpful in trying to resolve that problem. The staff is friendly. The food was good, just the breakfast could have been better and more variety and they don't turn on the a/c...

We were placed here by our tour company and it was great. We had many meals there and they were all excellent, although a little repetitive - fish for almost all lunches and dinners, but very good. The room was the nicest of the 3 hotels we stayed at in the Galapagos, roomy with a very nice bathroom. There was...

Very clean, occasional wireless access, frequent hot water and a wonderful laundry next door that is open early and late and has clothes ready and completely dry at the promised time including muddy sneakers and smelly wetsuits. Also Eduardo makes the best happy hour mojito I've ever had. Very nice and helpful staff. The rooms near the side driveway/kitchen are...

We stayed here for one night after our cruise of the islands. It was in a great location, very close to the main street, but just far enough away that it was quiet. The rooms were basic, but large and very clean. Breakfast was simple, but tasty and filling. It was a perfect spot to stay!
